The Goal Of Spiritual Practice by Jeremy Lehrer

October 10, 2014

I was feeling unhappy the other day,walking home,and thinking about a difficult situation I’d had with a friend. We’d argued about something and it had lodged into my craw. But then I found comfort in the ability to acknowledge my own unhappiness and to really feel it. In that moment of unbridled sensation, I reflected that there is something heartbreaking and deeply sad about recognizing your own responsibility for everything you experience and feel. Which led to another thought, which is not new, but is certainly worth repeating. The goal of spiritual practice is to break your heart again and again until all you have left is a capacity to love.
